Very nice to visit, also for non-french speaking. We visited during one of the shows, that was the highlight of the visit. Don't foget to bring something to eat or drink because there was not a lot for sale.

Le chateau de Murol is well worth a visit if you are in the Auvergne region of France. While especially of interest to children and teens, it is worthwhile for adults as well. The only disadvantage is that the explanations of all of the activities are in French. The medieval show however requires no explanation.

We went there with the animated visit and that was just great! I would certainly recommend it to adults and kids

The chateau is situated at the top of a hill above Murol. It would be best to visit during the high season to take advantage of the pageantry and jousting that they conduct. When we visited in April it was simply a self guided tour of the ruin.
The walk up led us past a catapult and all along the lower level on the approach we had stunning views over the surrounding countryside. In the main hall there were various coats of arms including that of Murol and the Lord's throne at the end. The next chamber had an impressive selection of weapons all of which were from around the 15th century.
The tour passed by several rooms including the Lord's bedroom and the treasury room though these were sparsely furnished. The wax works models looked a little fake and probably could have been left out. At the top of the tower we enjoyed the ramparts walk again with wonderful views including towards Lac Chambon.
Overall it was enjoyable but not as fullfilling as expected.
